Mike Younger, Nashville singer/songwriter, worked his way up from street performer to a recording artist with critically acclaimed works and radio success who has performed at the Ryman in Nashville, The Kennedy Center in DC and The Beacon Theatre in NY. He is once again showing the creative versatility that exists at the core of any enduring artist. Younger's 4th recording project “Little Folks Like You And Me”, produced by one of Nashville's great guitar wizards Bob Britt (Leon Russell, John Fogerty, Bob Dylan, Delbert McClinton) was released July 21, 2017. The album debuted in the Top 5 Most Added Albums to Americana Radio and is receiving airplay throughout the country.
